Yes I know, the speaker is a member of a muslim minority. Kudos though for reacting and knocking the weapon away. The gunman had no clue and probably very little handgun experience.
Also notice how the crowd instead of turning and running beat the beejeebers out of the gunman, LOL!
Link in the comment is direct to the video on You Tube. The other link is to the story on Buzzfeed.
I'd also like to ID the weapon...Walther maybe??? Smallish and kind of odd looking to me. Then again as everyone here should know I am noob when it comes to firearms...sigh.

Some say it was a gas gun and the entire thing was a publicity stunt. Who knows? It’s Sofia Bulgaria. Years ago I used to listen to a shortwave broadcast from there and they seemed like a warm, nice people. Then the muzzies took over...

Huh? Muslims are 8% of Bulgarias population. They have not taken over.
